Check this out people are thinking this is Amy Bradley, the girl that went missing in 1998 from a Cruise Ship after leaving Aruba. People are thinking she was involved in a sex trade. Is this her if she is alive she has been gone for toooo long. It is ridiculous that she is alive and her family has to miss her. I need your help please do this as soon as you can its been long enough.
Iva and Ron received a picture via e-mail from a sender who wishes to remain anonymous.
Dr. Phil says, "I want to show you this picture of who may very well be Amy Bradley seven years after her disappearance. Now I want to emphasize that we discussed whether we should show this picture on the air with former FBI profiler Clint Van Zandt who has worked on many kidnapping cases. Now, Ron and Clint both agree that because this is the first lead that they've had in nearly eight years, he and Iva would like to show this picture in case this young woman is indeed Amy. Now, we have had top forensic artist experts in the country look at these pictures, and they say that it is possible that it could be Amy.
"I'll tell you what. Why don't we go through the features that the experts have picked out? Now first we want to look at the cheekbones here. And what they do is they measure things that don't change in time." Dr. Phil points out similarities in her cheekbones, her hairline, her chin, and even a mark that Iva pointed out, a freckle below her eye.
"Do you believe that could be your daughter?" Dr. Phil asks Iva.
"I believe it could be Amy," she responds.
Hi, thanks for this...I think the FBI has a way to determine if this is her not...if it is, then it could be possible she was taken to the same place Natalee Holloway was...this Frog Legs place in Columbia.
Brian we need to speak! You are right and we are almost certain that Natalee is in Columbia!!
Why didn't she just call home?
Hi, glad to hear this...not sure, if she was abducted into the sex trade, she maybe embarrassed to call home...and the longer she stays away, the more difficult it is to do.
Anyway, I hope you guys locate her...even if she does not want to be located...and I'm willing to help in any way I can, but I do not need credit nor can I accept reward money...just find her :)
Didn't know if you had heard the news, but Aruban authorities have officially closed the Natalee Holloway case...
Just thought you might want to update the page on her... My hope is that she will still be found through the efforts of other individuals, like yourself.
Thanks Rachel, they mat have closed the case but it's still open for me, and I do have a reader checking out this location in Columbia for me. Hopefully I will know something soon.
I'm glad that you haven't closed the case. I think it's a shame really, but perhaps your reader will be able to shed new light on the case. I do hope she is still alive, like you have suggested.
Thanks again for all that you do!
You're welcome and same to you and yours :)
ORANJESTAD, ARUBA -- Aruban prosecutors announced Tuesday that the case into Natalee Holloway's disappearance is now closed.
The Alabama teen disappeared in Aruba during a class trip to the island back in May of 2005.
Today, prosecutors said that the three men who were last seen with Holloway have all been notified that they will not be charged.
A spokesperson says Natalee's mother, Beth Twitty, is "deeply disappointed" that the case is closed, after being hopeful over the past few weeks that new evidence had surfaced.
In their statement, prosecutors say they still believe the three men are involved in Holloway's disappearance, but cannot prove a crime was committed because her body was never found
To say the least! Especially the stuff about Natalee Holloway and
Jennifer Kesse. You said you had someone researching the Columbia
location. Heard from him? Is he in Columbia? Has anyone located the
buildings described in the Kesse viewings? If I had the means,I check
your stuff out.
Hi, no I have not, but that doesn't necessarily mean she has not been spotted. I'm not sure of the locations of my readers, but I'm guessing they live in the area.
I'm not sure about the last question.
The Fat Lady Sang For FOX's Greta Van Susteren Last Night
By Dayo Gould
FOX’s Greta Van Susteren,whose entertaining show,On The Record,has been
the source for much of the air time allocated over the last 12
interminable calendar months to Beth Reynolds Holloway-Twitty ((the
media-maven-loving mother of the missing Natalee Holloway),had the great
good fortune last night to interview Joran van der Sloot’s New York
City-based lawyer,Mr. Joseph Tacopina.
Mr. Tacopina,never one to mince words or to leave dunces in doubt about
their dumbness,quite happily hammered home his latest findings,which
originated from the Tacopina Coffin Nail Factory:
There is irrefutable proof (from the Holiday Inn’s keylog records) that
Natalee Holloway’s Holiday Inn room was accessed 3 times on the morning
of the vanishing (at around 1:30 a.m. and twice around 3:30 a.m.) by a
keycard assigned to Natalee Holloway,showing that she may have retrieved
her keycard from the individual who had used it at 1:26 a.m.; and she
therefor may very well have accessed her room at 3:30 a.m. after
returning from the Marriott Beach where she was left by the innocent
Joran van der Sloot.
Mr Tacopina is now in possession of a witness statement given to the
ALE,attesting that the witness “knows Natalee was in her room after 3
a.m.”; which fully supports that decisive on-air statement made by
Frances Ellen Byrd,11 months earlier.
On June 2,2005,MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough interviewed trip participant
Frances Ellen Byrd in Mountain Brook,as follows:
Joe Scarborough : Let me ask you,Frances Ellen,when is the last time you
Frances Ellen Byrd: That night.
Scarborough : Yes, you saw her the night...
Byrd: I was with her that night.
Scarborough : You were with her that night.
Byrd: Yes. Yes.
Scarborough : All the friends went back to the hotel. And did you all
see her go back to the hotel or not?
Byrd: I am just leaving it that we saw her there.
Scarborough : Saw her that night.
Mountain Brook youth minister: Yes. Absolutely”
Further questioning was derailed by the interjections of a Mountain
Brook minder,a youth pastor (Mark Yoder),who was not a trip participant
and therefore could not have had any first-hand knowledge of the
clarification which the interviewer had just received.
While the following is not a coffin nail of Joe’s manufacture,it does
suck a bit of wind out of the HMI sails,as it suggests that articles,
worn or carried by Natalee and shown on the C&C’s video tapes,may have
been removed from Aruba,though recognized now as being ‘evidence’.
A Dutch TV program was on Aruba last week,re-enacting the night of the
vanishing,and the producers attempted to create as much authenticity as
possible by using whatever was on hand that directly related to the
events which occured on that evening (Deepak Kalpoe’s car was
confiscated by the ALE for the filming).
Ms. Twitty made a most-curious on-air comment about the television
production, ‘hoping they (the ALE) don’t use the evidence I sent them’.
‘Evidence’ would seemingly have to be something that was on Aruba,
something that was taken from Aruba, and which was then was returned to
What might constitute ‘evidence’ (taken off island and then returned)
which could tie into the C&C’s video tape? Clothing or Nat’s cell phone
come immediately to mind; however, how could these items get into the
mother’s possession, if Natalee never returned to the Holiday Inn after
being left by Joran at the Marriott Beach?
If one follows this through logically, the easiest way for the mother to
obtain articles which her daughter wore or carried on that C&C evening
(confirmed by C&C's video footage), and which may have been those
returned to the ALE, would be for her to have had them on hand in
If the mother had these items in her possession, then that would be
further proof that Natalee did come back to the Holiday Inn, as she
would have gone to her hotel room, changed into different clothes, and
then the discarded C&C articles would be packed into Natalee's suitcase
by Nat or the room mates and eventually taken back to MB by the mother.
There now appears to be a rue-filled collective outpouring of repressed
memory by a selective coterie of MB trip participants (more on this
later); whether this has evolved into direct communication with Mr.
Tacopina remains to be seen.
Much has been made, over the last 12 months, of the unsettling focus and
drive of Ms. Twitty and her hangers-on (some called her the Energizer
Mother); it now seems that what may have motivated her was a refusal to
accept facts, and perhaps an extreme case of obsessive compulsive

Natalee Holloway And The Holiday Inn
By Dayo Gould
Apr. 12, 2006
FOX’s Greta Van Susteren put the proverbial boots to Beth
Holloway-Twitty’s donation-directed assaults upon the van der Sloot and
Kalpoe families when she aired, on her April 11 show, an over-the-phone
interview with Julia Renfrow, the well-respected editor of the Aruba
Ms. Renfow related, to a momentarily speechless Greta, that she had
recently viewed a video tape filmed by a Holiday Inn security camera at
about 3:15 a.m. on May 30, 2005. The camera, angled to provide coverage
of the front-desk area, captured images of a young girl (wearing the
same outfit as the one which Natalee Holloway had on in the C&C’s videos
taken a couple of hours earlier) who has a remarkably similar hair style
and gait to the missing Natalee and who is afflicted with her
distinctive nose and figure (unflatteringly commented upon by the
This video,which has been in the possession of the ALE since June 1,had
purportedly been previously shown in June to Natalee’s birth father,
Dave Holloway,who was unable to confirm whether or not it was his
daughter,and to Natalee’s mother who,despite the clothing,shoes,
distinctively large nose and small chest,denied that it was her daughter
who had been caught on tape by the hotel’s security camera.
A picture speaks a thousand words; yet we also have thousands of words
to buttress this tape of the reappeared daughter,who did not disappear
from the Marriott Beach,but from the supposedly safe embrace of the
Holiday inn,where she was ensconced with 120 Mountain Brook grads and a
gaggle of myopic or obtuse non-chaperoning chaperones
Statements have recently surfaced from two Holiday Inn security guards
who attest to Ms. Holloway’s presence on the premises after 3:00 a.m. on
the morning in question; the Holiday Inn’s keylock system recorded two
entries, using the keycard issued to Ms. Holloway, at around 3:30 that
morning; and a rather unsavoury local resident has suggested that he
viewed Ms. Holloway in her room, also after 3:00 a.m.
The enigmatic answer of Ms. Frances Ellen Byrd now becomes clear: she
did indeed see Natalee in the hallways of the Holiday Inn after the
young Aruban, Joran van der Sloot, left her on the beach in front of the
Marriott hotel. Ms. Byrd, who comes from a fine, upstanding Southern
family, obviously wrestled with her conscience while HMI used her
reticence with words to parlay the mystery into tens of millions in
And also aired tonight was the Dutch-filmed re-enactment of the
vanishing timeframe,put together in the hopes that some viewers’
memories might be jogged by the events,locales,materials and individuals
recreated as close to reality as was possible.
My memory wasn’t just jogged; it was jolted and jarred. WHAT!! In the
opening scenes,Natalee Holloway was shown passing through the Aruban
customs area,accompanied by a large black suitcase on rollers
(containing a purple duffel bag). Yet,when the media-maven-loving mother
showed us the contents of what was purported to be Natalee’s Holiday Inn
room,there was no large black suitcase,only the duffel,which was passed
off as being the sole item of luggage taken to Aruba by the daughter.
This was a re-enactment,as true-to-life as was possible. IMO,if the
rolling black suitcase is shown in the re-enactment,then there was one
brought to Aruba by the now-missing daughter. Where is it and what
happened to it?
Was it jettisoned (and why would anyone do that?); was it used for
nefarious purposes (stuffed full of body parts?); was it stolen (and why
would anyone do that,and why wouldn't Beth report that theft as another
indignity heaped upon her pointy little head by unkind Aruba?); or was
Nat sitting beside it last night,watching the re-enactment?
Take your pick: however,the fact that HMI seems to have attempted to
cover up the existence of that suitcase means that its absence is likely
However,absent no longer is visual proof showing Natalee Holloway back
in the lobby of the Holiday Inn at 3:15 a.m. on May 30, 2005.
